What Does Our Buy A Home, Give A Home Campaign Mean?!
The Jeff Cook Real Estate Team has had great success and is continuing to enjoy increasing growth in the Carolinas. One of the core values of the company has always been “To stay humble and check your ego at the door”. Staying humble means to never take for granted the success you’re given in this world, to continue to always do your best and to be grateful. We are thankful to God for all He has given us!
Our success has enabled us to establish and fund Jeff Cook Cares, a One Percent for Good program that we established in 2016. Jeff Cook Cares has partnered with The Fuller Center for Housing, to build housing for those that are homeless and living in poverty.
The Fuller Center for Housing was founded in 2005 by Millard and Linda Fuller, who also founded Habitat for Humanity in 1976. The Fuller Center for Housing is dedicated to eliminating poverty housing worldwide. The way our collaboration works is that each time someone buys a house, the individual agents can donate a portion of their earnings to Jeff Cook Cares, and then Jeff Cook Real Estate will match that donation.
These combined donations have been going to a Global Build project in La Florida, Peru, which is a small migrant area two and a half hours south of Lima. People move to La Florida from the mountains to try to find work as day laborers. Most of the dwellings they live in are made of reed panels with dirt floors, which don’t provide many shelters from the elements. The Fuller Center brings in teams of volunteers who construct simple brick houses of about 650 square feet in partnership with the local people, who perform some sweat equity. Each house provides the first permanent housing the Peruvian families have ever known. We are thrilled to report that our first house built with The Fuller Center has been completed. Melissa and her two children have just moved in and are no longer homeless. You can see a picture of the happy family below.
The Jeff Cook Real Estate team is a group of dedicated, knowledgeable real estate experts who can help you with your housing needs but who also do not forget to give to the greater good of the world. A part of each transaction you complete with us, helps to provide a home for a family in need. Call 855-Hey-Jeff to join in this great program. And remember, as Jeff Cook says, “ It’s impossible to be mad, stressed or angry and also be grateful”. Give thanks to God above for the roof over your head tonight!
